Description

Trichophyton fungi inhabit the soil, humans and animals, different species preferring different environments. Most common are Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton schoenleinii, Trichophyton tonsurans, Trichophyton verrucosum, and Trichophyton violaceum. Some species are cosmopolitan. Others have a restricted geographic distribution. Trichophyton concentricum, for example, is endemic on Pacific Islands, Southeast Asia, and Central America.

Trichophyton is one of the leading causes of hair, skin, and nail infections in humans.

Trichophyton spp. classically induce delayed-type, or cell-mediated, hypersensitivity, but a unique feature of Trichophyton allergens is the ability of the same antigen to elicit immediate-type hypersensitivity reactions as well. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
